The color of caramel quickly changes over the heat so timing is important when adding the hot water.

Followed the directions, heated/steamed for 20 minutes @ 200°. 45 minutes after refrigerating, they never set up. Still a liquid? Perhaps I should have went 40 minutes.

My custard bowls were thicker and ceramic so, I increased the water temp to 220° F and steamed them 40 minutes. The water was just beginning to boil at 39 minutes. Cooled them for 30 minutes then refrigerated overnight. Perfect!

Can I make this with a traditional steamer and should I change anything in the process if I do? 🙂
